New Reveal : 2010 Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid

You read it! Porsche is now officially into the hybrid market. Last year, Porsche announced that they were working on the first hybrid Porsche, and now it shows. Porsche has released details about the 2010 Cayenne S Hybrid, which will debut production beginning of 2010.
Porsche have been working on a hybrid system with Audi, so this hybrid system could be used in Audis and even Volkswagens later on. The hybrid system is created from 2 engines, Audi's 333hp and 324 lb-ft of torque supercharged 3.0L V6, and a 52hp three-phase synchronous electric motor that produces up to 221 lb-ft of torque. So with 385hp and 545 lb-ft of torque in-total, this gives proper V8 power and acceleration, 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds for this 2.5 ton automobile is very good. However, the hybrid system can make the electric motor run alone; Porsche engineers have been able to drive at speeds up to 86 mph without using the V6. That results into the Cayenne S Hybrid to get 20% less CO2 emissions and an average of 27 mpg of fuel efficiency. To sum up, the Cayenne S Hybrid gets V8 power and acceleration a 4-cylinder fuel efficiency and emissions.
No information regarding prices were revealed. But we know that similar hybrid system will also find its way into the all-new Panamera sometimes in 2010.
